Striking red leather pannier bag with black leather detailing made in Britain
The Bertie, is an English gent, in bike bag form. Crafted in bold postbox red leather with black leather detailing he will carry your things for you and look dapper at the same time - both on the bike and on your arm.
Designed as a modern twist on the satchel, the Bertie, like all the Hill & Ellis range, is firstly a beautifully crafted bag so you can cycle to the tea shop with class. However the Bertie is also an exceptional bike bag with hidden universal pannier clips so it can be attached seamlessly to your bike.
Part of the "Blighty Collection" the Bertie has been made in the UK by expert handbag producers, and he has been deliberately manufactured as close to home as possible to reduce the effect on the environment.
He has all the Hill & Ellis bike-y features: reversible reflective strips for safer night riding, a waterproof bag jacket for those rainy days, carefully hidden universal pannier clips complete with a central locking system and leather padding to protect the bag from rubbing on the bike. Bertie also features a shoulder strap so it is perfect for a summer picnic in the park on foot or on two wheels.
The patented pannier clips are German manufactured by one of the industry's best pannier hook producers. They are spring loaded so they can attach to any pannier rack - from 6mm - 16mm and the central locking system firmly secures the bag on the bike. They can be easily replaced but these hooks are built to last and come with a 2 year guarantee.
The bag fits a 15 inch laptop. Capacity: 10.6 litres.

Care & Maintenance
The bag is made of leather so will naturally alter with time, which is part of it's beauty.
To keep it in it's best condition we advice using the waterproof bag cover on rainy and muddy rides and also wiping any dirt, road salt, or water from the bag as soon as possible.
The bag is designed to attach to a back pannier rack, and the hooks will adapt to fit on any rack from 6mm-16mm.
For your own safety please detach the shoulder strap from the bag whilst cycling so it won't get caught in your wheel.
We also advise using a quality leather cleaner every 6 weeks to keep the leather in it's best condition.
